An Early Spring Potluck Picnic at Hermit Island!!

 

It's on! The weather forecast is saying 50's and sunny!!!

Sunday April 7th at 11:00 am. If anyone wants to carpool or caravan from Hallowell or the MacDonalds in Bath I will be leaving Hallowell at 9:30 and MacDonalds in Bath at 10:30. Email me or call [masked]) if you want a ride or to follow me.

After we meet (11am) we can walk on the beach for an hour or so then go back to the cars to get our lunches...There are picnic tables on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Evelyn G and I wondered how to handle the "pot luck" portion and decided the best thing would be for everyone to bring something that they want to eat and something extra to share. I will bring a sandwich and a drink for my lunch and fruit and brownies to share with the group...I will add what others are bringing here as I hear...

This is a beautiful spot. For more pictures of Hermit Island go to the photo section of this site and look at the album from New Years Day. Click on the map above for a Google map of the area...

    I'm glad to hear there will be another trip. After living in Maine since early 1979 I am finding out there is still so much I have not seen!

    I have never been to Hermit Island. Hope there is a return trip sometime.

    We planned on going but the best laid plans, etc. In March I went down a flight of icey stairs, disconnected my knee cap from its tendon, etc. So I'm in one of those complicated looking leg braces with dials and all manner of restraints. Simply put, I'm not going anywhere on foot for a while. But I'm happy to hear that this outing to Hermit was a success!

      Sorry about your spill (slide) but glad that you are healing. We are looking forward to when you can join the group!

    Yes, indeed, Freeport next--there is Wolfneck Woods State park as well as Pettingil Farm across the street and the Mast Landing Sanctuary adjacent to my place. I could cook breakfast, assuming everyone is flexible among the clutter and general mess of the house here. It only got worse when my daughter moved out.

      Have been to the farm there to volunteer last fall - a nice ride down. Would like to go to the park too.

    What a great place! It was chilly but that was incentive to keep moving. I hope we repeat this walk again soon. Looking forward to the next get together...

    A lovely but chilly day and nice to be out. We walked for just under 2 hours on the beach, over rocks, through the bushes and some of split from the group to go house hunting on the back roads for our dream cottage . We found it perched on the rocks overlooking the sea..a million dollar location with not much more than a shack for $380K. It's grandfathered so no neighbors in the future and the land has been in the family for 8 generations. I would happily leave my life and belongings to spend the rest of my days on that spot. All I would need is a deck. (well, maybe more than that) OR we could buy it as a group and share!
    Then we met up with the group for a shared lunch of all sorts of goodies:donuts, brownies, crackers and hummus, scones. Lots of talk about what to do next and some great ideas...visiting vinyards, walking around Belfast, a Freeport excursion including Wolfs Neck, Bow Street and the outlets for the shoppers. Also, the travel store in Yarmouth with a local walk/ hike.

      Let's do go to Belfast! I like the idea of a "city" tour.

    The food part sounds right to me - I'm on a diet and can't eat much anyway!

    April 4, 2013

    • Ann R.

      Me too! I'm supposed to lose weight before we go to Ireland! Hah!

    We'll have to have another outing to this spot when I'm done recuperating! Have fun, sounds like a good time and good weather.

    I would echo what Bev said and hope too for good weather.

    Thank you.

  • Bev

    Either date works for me. Looks like April 7th has the majority. Let's hope for a warm, sunny day!

    March 10, 2013

  • Ann R.

    should I announce now for April 7? Or wait till we get closer to the date to announce and watch the weather?

    March 9, 2013

  • Karen

    April date would work for me at this time....

    I have a course on the 24th, but could probably make it on 4/7. I have camped at Hermit Island a few times, it is a beautiful spot.

    March 9, 2013

  • Ann R.

    we'll keep an eye on the weather forecast and post a date when we get closer..I'm thinking Sundays March 24 or April 7 weather permitting..

    Sounds like a plan--lovely spot, and if I can get there without getting lost, it will be a pleasant surprise. When they passed out "senses of direction" I was missed.

    Greetings to all.

    Thanks

    March 8, 2013

  • Bev

    I love this plan, can't wait for good weather so we don't have to keep moving to stay warm!
